Apparently Jews aren’t immune to the general moral decay in society any more than any other people. In recent years Jewish con men have suffered a serious lapse in ethics and have begun preying on their own kind instead of just the goyem. The world-famous swindler Bernie Madoff was not only notable for running a 60 billion dollar Ponzi Scheme, Madoff is famous for ripping off numerous Jews (as opposed to mostly Gentile victims and just a few accidental Jewish victims). More and more Jewish swindlers are turning up who have made millions of dollars and whole careers out of swindling their fellow Tribesmen.
The latest “mini-Madoff” is reported in the New York Daily News, with an interesting excuse for his deceit: “The rebbe made him do it.” An article in The Daily News reports: “A Brooklyn developer accused of fleecing dozens of Hasidic families in a massive subprime mortgage fraud scheme took cover behind a divine defense on Tuesday. Eliyahu Ezagui’s lawyer told jurors his client received a blessing from the late Rabbi Menachem Schneerson to build affordable housing for the Lubavitcher community in Crown Heights. ‘It was a mitzvah to him, a Hebrew word that means a good deed and an obligation,’ defense lawyer Susan Necheles said in her opening statement in Brooklyn Federal Court. Schneerson is considered by some followers to be their Messiah, and thousands of Hasidim from all over still make a pilgrimage to his grave site 15 years after his death.”
The Jews are also expecting him to rise from the dead and proclaim himself the Messiah. Funny how they ignored the real Messiah, but instead are obsessed with this guy, who shows no signs of returning.
The Daily News goes on: “Assistant U.S. Attorney William Schaeffer said Ezagui was nothing but a crook who scammed $2.6 million from condominium buyers and more than $10 million from banks.’Family after family who trusted the defendant are fighting against foreclosure of the homes they bought from him,’ Schaeffer told the jury. Prosecutors built a criminal case against Ezagui after the Daily News revealed in 2008 how he allegedly conned buyers into purchasing condos, then refused to hand over the deeds when the construction was completed. Instead, Ezagui allegedly gave the deeds to family members – including his wife, father and mother – who applied for mortgages on condos the victims thought they owned.”
Now, that’s pretty blatant thievery, even by Jewish standards. I guess that’s what they call chutzpah.
The article continues “Although Ezagui had the grand rebbe’s blessing, he needed cash to build and that’s where the investors came in, Necheles argued. She said the so-called victims are sore losers trying to use the criminal justice system to recoup their investment losses.”
How are they supposed to do that? The money is presumably spent.
For many many centuries, strict Talmudic law prevented Jews from exercising their predations on their fellow Jews. Indeed, an entire rabbinical court system called the Beth Din was set up in order to try Jews who preyed on their own people and order punishment and restitution, for the same shady and dishonest business practices they routinely use on Gentiles.
Yet in today’s “anything goes” world of situational ethics and moral relativism, a world that the Jewish people have themselves been instrumental in creating, it looks as if the Chosen Ones are not immune to the very moral rot they have foisted on their hapless host populations. Their special subclass of confidence tricksters and thieves (the kind that robbed only Gentiles that Jewish storytellers would boast about) now no longer care whom they cheat, a sign of disunity worth noting.
